Default Safestrap removed now cannot boot into stock recovery

Hey guys Im trying to get my rooted and ROM'ed ME7 Galaxy S4 back to barebone stock as Im trying to sell the phone.
What things have I done to my phone?
Ive rooted my ME7 S4 and then loaed Safestrap recovery and installed a custom rom on slot 1
Now in the process of trying to get my phone back to stock I did a wipe from safestrap on the stock rom slot which reset the stock rom I then booted from the stock rom n downloaded safestrap and was able to uninstal safestrap so now my phone boot up to a fresh clean s4 without any safestrap recovery splash screen

however my problem is in order to sell my phone I have to be able to do a reset from the settings then accounts tab and backup and reset button
however when I do this the phone reboots and has the Could not do normal boot error odin mode
I assume since I removed the safestrap recovery there is no recovery software at all now?
Can anyone tell me how I can get stock recovery back onto my phone and heres the kicker if at all possible to do so without the use of a PC as I currently dont have access to one but if thats the only way still pkease let me know how I can get stock recovery back

Also im not really concern with unrooting the phone as long as I can get back into the stock recovery. Also if anyone is wondering yes I can install safestrap again and it will boot up like how I had my rooted n rom setup

I just need to get my stock recovery back so I can do factory data resets using the stock recovery n not the wipe method from safestrap recovery

thanks for any help

If you're going to sell it, plug it in to your PC and run the Verizon Recovery Assistant. It'll wipe and reinstall for you.
My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock MJ7, now rooted!
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
